    So I usually get on the elevator and go stand right next to someone just to make them feel uncomfortable.

    I saw a video where the first people on the elevator faced the back wall. Everyone who got on the elevator after then faced the back wall too. People are such sheep.

    If I'm on an elevator with one other person and we're NOT having a conversation I often get a "have a good day" from the person when they exit.

    Is it being polite? Or , my theory, is it mainly a "I've got to say something - this silence is killing me?"

    Anyone else a)notice it or b)say it when exiting an elevator?
    I am one of those annoying people who makes sure to make eye contact and will offer some banal conversation, usually a comment about the weather, or something equally stupid. Without fail, I say have a nice day. I try to be the person pushing the buttons so I can ask what floor to start conversation.

    My father in law was an elevator repairmen. He gets and emergency call to release some folks that were trapped. He goes to open the door and a man proceeds to cuss him out. He closes the door and says "Ill be back later". Waited a good amount of time and showed back up and asked if they were ready to get off the elevator. They were very polite that time.
